I have an idea for a new game.



 



I will post a set of co-ords. The first person to give the name of the location "wins",and gets to post the next set of co-ords.



The co-ords don't have to be to a cache site, or even to a place you have been before.



Co-ords are:



N 51 05.166 W 114 21.366



Good luck.

Near the Boulder Bumpers ride.

$25 will get you in the gate although there are some height restrictions (I'm not naming any names).

Quick work DragonFreys!

Sounds like a fun game Jimbo 2

Ah yes, but you got the ride name first TurdleEggs, from this trusty map no doubt





If download it you can overlay it in Google Earth



I do have an idea for the next one if allowed Jimbo2.

Yes!, one point for Dragonfreys!



Name of the park was good enough.



Honourable menthion to TurdlEggs for the Exact location....



I used to go there when I was a kid. It opened as "Fred Flintstone Park", then was re-named Calaway Park.



Wish we had one around here.



Go ahead and post your set of co-ords Dragonfreys.

Actually looking at the overlay it might be slightly closer to Twiz and Twirl Maze.

Isn't there a big amusment park on the east side of Winnipeg here: 4950'11.79"N 9658'46.47"W



The next mystery coordinates are here: 50 0'38.20"N 110 6'48.32"W. You may need a little perspective to see it.

Just a note:



Because Dragonfreys posted these co-ords, it will be up to him to decide a winner....

Yep that's the one.



Dani has the ball for the next coordinate, bonus points for Jimbo2 for finding references.



Here's the story that ran in As It Happens on CBC



http://www.cbc.ca/aih/features/2006/alberta_rock_sculpture_20061026.html



If you look at the 3D image it's interesting to see that it is actually a valley or coulee rather than a hill.

I was thinking about the name for this game and you could add on the title of Whatzit as well as Wherezit.
